The BGU-Negev Hi-Tech Faculty Startup Accelerator (BGU-NHSA) was formed as a hub for faculty members interested in developing and focusing on startups with the help of their students. BGU-NHSA provides the opportunity to develop breakthrough inventions and receive all the support, assistance and help they need. It combines the consulting know-how of traditional accelerators with the vast resources of its research university.

We also offer unique mentorship by successful industry leaders to create a powerful environment for startups, allowing them to find capital, launch and grow.
